Shopping small can be hard. I have really made an effort to support small businesses, but things do tend to cost more money, and I don't always have more money. But from the things that I have bought from small or local shops, I LOVE. And they have been totally worth it.
One way that I know I can support the businesses that I love is by sharing them with you. I decided that I want to start sharing my favorite local or small business with you every so often. To share their story and why I love them so much.
Today I am sharing a Kansas City local shop, KC Threads.
KC Threads is a t-shirt shop that is all about giving back. "The concept is simple, giving back is cool, and you can make a difference!" Shirts purchased from them can be donated back within a year of your purchase to be donated to a child that needs it. You and your child can also donate items from a list on the site to be given to other children as well. It is such an awesome concept! Not only does your child get to enjoy the shirt but they get to give back to others in the community. (read more about the concept here)
Here are a few of the items that can be donated:
- New toys
- Gently and clean pre-owned toys (from non-smoking homes)
- Coloring books
- Pictures from your kid(s)
- Letters from your kid(s)
Noah got his shirt for Christmas and is enjoying it right now, but when the time comes we will definitely be making a donation to another child in need.
Head on over to their site to check it out!
